NEW INTERNATIONAL ALLIANCE FORMED TO DRIVE KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE AND INNOVATION IN HEALTHY AGEING

NHSA signs MoU with Canadian healthy ageing experts at BIO 2019 to drive knowledge exchange, innovation and support research collaboration. The Northern Health Science Alliance (NHSA) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Canadian healthy ageing experts to drive knowledge exchange, innovation and support research collaboration between Canada and the North of England.

Ageing populations are a global challenge for developed countries and healthy ageing has been identified as one of the UK Industrial Strategy’s Grand Challenges.

This MOU brings together a range of Canadian organisations with a group of member institutions and stakeholders of the NHSA to form the Canadian and Northern England Multi-Organisation Collaboration on Healthy Ageing, which will identify and address key challenges and opportunities around ageing through knowledge exchange, research partnerships and commercial collaboration.

Nicola Wilson, Interim Chief Executive Officer of the NHSA, said: “Addressing the needs of our ageing population is a key area of activity for the NHSA and sharing knowledge in healthy ageing with our international colleagues will be key to global health improvement moving forward.

“This MoU represents a fantastic opportunity for the North of England to work with our Canadian peers to help drive forward innovation within the field of healthy ageing."
